Navy offers a five-day Science, Technology, Engineering and Math course to rising 9-11th graders every summer. Applications close on 31 March:
The STEM Program gives students the opportunity to experience real-life applications of math and science principles through hands-on practical learning. Students will learn from distinguished Naval Academy professor s in world-class lab facilities that provide a unique learning environment outside the traditional classroom. The academy’s current students, known as midshipmen, help run the Summer STEM Program and act as counselors and tutors to students.
Approximately 375 total students from around the U.S. will be accepted to STEM. All students selected to participate will receive a full scholarship to attend this academic summer program, but will be responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.
Free is an awfully good price.
